Week 35 ~ October 23, 2002
~ Doing Great!

Yeah! 35 weeks is almost over! I can't believe it yet, not really anyway. I had my OB appointment this past Monday and they did a non-stress test on the baby; she is fine. He also did an internal check and found that I am dilated 2 cms! That is so exciting. He said that as long as I had her after Halloween that she would be full term and everything will be okay! I can't really believe that everything is happening so fast. It seems like just yesterday that I found out I was pregnant again. Let's see if I still feel that way two weeks from now!

I will start seeing the doctor every week from here on out. That kind of seems to make the time fly faster. I hope. It certainly gives me hope anyway, knowing that the time is near.

Gabe is doing wonderful! He is learning so much everyday, that I'm having a hard time keeping up with him. What am I going to do with two? That thought gets more and more mind boggling. Wondering how I'm going to cope with two small children . . . I know that many women have traveled this road before me; it's just a little daunting to me. I'm still adjusting to not having to go to a job outside my home everyday. In some ways that was a lot easier than what I am doing now. I just have to hand it to all of you moms out there who have more than one child. I don't know how you do it! One is hard enough.

We are doing okay financially. I've really had to come to grips with budgeting and really making homemade meals instead of buying stuff all ready to pop into the microwave. It is really amazing to me how much money I used to spend on groceries in a month, compare to what I'm spending now. I can't help but be ashamed at how much money we wasted. Oh well, that's all water down the drain.

Hope everyone is doing great this week! I am doing pretty good, just ready to have all this over with, or am I?
